On a 500 horse car with TRACTION, your looking at absolutly torching the new 997 twin's 0-60 time. Especially if you have the 4 speed box with and an extended redline- no shifts before 60 where the 997 has got to hit 2nd gear to hit 60. I just use the 997 as a benchmark, but in reality, the 997 has a good 500 lbs or more on a stock 930. But the only way to get a 500 hp+ 930 to hook is drag radials/slicks and really stiff rear springs/t-bars. Eddie Bello used to lift the wheels off the ground and he use Toyo street tires with 550 LB rear springs. 9.13 at 150/160 mph
